Exploring Native and Non-Native Intuitions of Word Frequency.
Schmitt, Norbert; Dunham, Bruce
Second Language Research, v15 n4 p389-411 Oct 1999
Asked native and nonnative speakers to give judgments of frequency for near synonyms in second-language lexical sets and compared those responses to modern corpus word counts. Native speakers were able to discern the core word in lexical sets either 77% or 85%, and nonnative speakers at 71% or 79%. (Author/VWL)
